“BEANS? Gout? What’s The Connection?”

(click the image to play the audio)

line-breakIn this conference call I go into what is happening with why you, me, and so many others have found out the hard way that yes indeed, beans can be a contributing factor in getting gout attacks.

So often we hear that we should stop eating red meat and shellfish (and a lot of other nonsense) and we eat up thinking we need to become vegetarians – so what better way to do that then go “Mexican” right? As in “beans and rice”? Well that can backfire on you in a hurry because some beans like edamame (immature soy beans) can be higher in proteins than the same amount of grams of of steak!

Way to Go, Bert!
As usual you have done us all a great service by taking us from the “symptoms to the cause” of the issue.  You have also done this without so much “med talk” that it goes over our heads.  Thanks for leading us all with kindness and compassion to Gout free lives!


. . .

My point for wanting to do this conference call is to draw more attention to the fact that purines are not getting processed well in the first place because our digestive function is diminishing.  That is the starting point of why we slowly start getting more and more gout attacks as the years go on, and they just keeping getting worse and worse.


Stop Gout Pain Now


Later it leads to diminishing kidney function and I talk on and on about this all the time – one day the mystery of gout will be solved…simply because we start realizing that some foods make our bodies work better and others don’t.



Bert Middleton

“I know your pain. Let me help you kill your gout for good!  And teach you to advocate for yourself and take ownership of your gout recovery, by showing you how to live the gout-free lifestyle.” Two decades ago, Bert Middleton found himself diagnosed with gout. Like 8.3 million other people in the United States (approximately 4% of the population), he struggled helplessly with the physical, emotional, social, and financial impact that gout left unchecked can have on your life. Prescription drugs were of limited help… And the terrible pain of regular gout attacks left him unable to enjoy even the simplest daily pleasures. His marriage was suffering. His finances were spiraling due to the impact gout had on his ability to work. And maintaining a social life was often nearly impossible. Tophi surgeries left him in terrible pain.  And he found himself depressed … and angry … that gout was stealing years of his life.

Until one day, after hundreds of hours of research and self-experimentation, Bert finally had a breakthrough and created a blueprint for a way of living that would prove to be “the answer” to living gout-free for nearly a decade now. Today, Bert and his “Gout Wife” Sharon devote their evenings and weekends to educating other gout sufferers on how to live the gout-free lifestyle. Showing others his 911 Emergency Response Gout Recovery Plan for getting PAINFUL gout attacks under control in as little as 4 hours. And then, how to make daily choices that keep gout under control for GOOD! So you can finally start LIVING again!
